Post by paypaytr » Tue Nov 21, 2017 11:43 am

I have a Redmi 4 phone with Vodafone 4G sim on it. I use to mobile hotspot while it works perfectly on windows 10 when i connect in linux mint there is no internet access(though it connectcs)

I tried both WPA2-SK and no protection

.

I had iPhone 5S before and it worked with MobileHotspot (with my linux mint).

also no internet with usb tethering either.

Can you change the channel the hotspot is on to 1-11 as Broadcom wifi cards usually don't allow over channel 11 in Linux

I can't be sure where the option might be on the phone or if you may need an app to be able to change the hotspot channel
